Terror At The Opera:
Against the defiantly garage-rock milieu of Detroit, an alternative underground has been brewing, and at the forefront is Terror at the Opera. The music of Terror at the Opera doesn't lend itself to modern classification, nor, indeed, to modernity. Toy pianos, diaphanous guitar and a dense, mesmeric accordion, conjured like a ghost of fin de siécle Vienna, betray the instant gratification that pop music proposes. However, the dark matter of absinthe dreams and other worlds made manifest in the music is pure atmosphere. The composition of the songs - evocative instrumentals and gypsy serenades - is an enigmatic web of styles: an inheritance of pop's bliss through a filter of folk and mythology.
(Real Detroit, Natalie Haddad)

I downloaded last night and love it. What imaginative pieces. Well done guys and please "move forward" and do lots more.
April 2008..Gretchen and Faith let me use one of the tracks on an experimental TV series I was producing. It worked like a charm. You can find the first episode here - just search for "All Over the Place" - in moving images.

First of all, this record is quite unlike music usually produced by Lostfrog (which is in itself an excellent label). This is a female duo from Detroit using anything from toy pianos to accordion to create an atmospheric sound. Quite hard to come up with comparisons and their uniqueness shines through this 4-song sampler.
